We like to mix our art with some parties; it goes a long way to explain why Art Basel Miami Beach is here. And Saturday night is no exception:  ArtCenter/South Florida (a multiple Knight Arts grant winner) is throwing its annual fundraiser and raffle, winningArt. What’s always great about this event is that it is so reasonably […]

Controversy has swirled around the Miami Art Museum’s name change, from MAM to PAMM when the brand new museum opens up on Biscayne Bay. Starting tomorrow night, we will all get a chance to see what caused that change, with the opening of “Frames of Reference: Latin American Art from the Jorge M. Perez Collection” […]

Photographing installations is an art form in itself. These aren’t portraits, not scenes or even re-enactments. Whereas photography can often be a medium to capture a moment, an emotion that other forums don’t offer, installation photography is by its essence staged, composed photos of a set that is still temporary and sometimes fundamentally artificial.

It’s not hard to understand why La Virgen de la Caridad, Our Lady of Charity, is the patron saint of Cuba. As legend has it, a statue of her was found floating in the water by three men in a boat 400 years ago, after they had prayed to the virgin to help save them […]

Although work from African Americans, Afro-Caribbeans and Africans show up on walls throughout the year here in Miami, it’s not with enough frequency as our diverse population would warrant.

For the second year in a row, the Deering Estate has taken a chance with an outdoor (and some indoor), site-specific sculpture, part of its Festival of the Arts. It’s well worth the jaunt down south. On opening night, the works were lit up, creating a glowing ambiance in the gorgeous grounds on the bay. […]

There is a lot of interesting stuff going on over at Cannonball (a Knight Arts grantee, formerly known as LegalArt), in downtown Miami. The nicely rehabbed building on North Miami Avenue provides studio and housing space for the art residents, and gives room for exhibits.

Once again, this thankfully chilly weekend offers up so many art events, you’ll have to make some choices. Tonight, Friday, for instance, there are a plethora of riches. Starting up in Broward at the Girls’ Club Collection (a Knight Arts grantee), one of Miami’s most consistently interesting artists, Karen Rifas, will give a talk about […]

There have been grumblings since December about the proliferation of fairs during Art Basel. Some feel that the amount of art and fairs is overkill, and blurring the lines between quality art and junk. Not to mention that fact that it got close to impossible to even get to some of the fairs because of […]
